Shrub replacement and other adise

tangxia2008(6)April 20, 2012

Can anyone please advise on some ideas about improving my landscaping. It appears by the brown coloring on the tall evergreen bushes I haveare dying or deceased. I plan to pull these up because also are too close to house. I am seeking advice on what to replace them with, a small tree or other ideas? Also on the side of my house I have a step bank of about 60 feet in length and 12 foot slant that I am unable to mow and difficult to weed eat. Any ideas for that on inexpensively getting ground cover to prevent weeds and grass. Finally on rear of my house with the retaining wall, any ideas on making it more manageable with eye appeal would be greatly appreciated. Any over all ideas to increase my curb appeal would certainly be welcomed and appreciated. photos here, https://picasaweb.google.com/112245519356455665681/DropBox?authkey=Gv1sRgCNXgxLmKsti6aA#

There is a landscape forum on here that is much busier. You might want to ask over there, too.
